The tin my mother made!

I've made a couple of tins lately and my mother just loved them so she decided she wanted to make one. She picked out the colors and silkie and I pieced the block for her (she's having a hard time figuring out how to piece) and she embellished this little tin. Isn't it pretty! I love how she did the inside with the floral motif! A few years ago I bought her some sre kits that she had worked on but never put them together. She cut out the sre that she did and glued it to the inside of the tin, I just love it! I also love how she embellished the outside, now I know where I get my talent from, lol.

Thank you for your comments but my mother made the tin! lol. I guess the title to the post was confusing so I changed it to> the tin my mother made. I'll let her know what you said about it, she will be thrilled that you think it's pretty! Jill
